Support for iOS in Qt 5.2 Beta

  • Hello everyone!

    When announced yesterday ("Announcement of Qt 5.2 Beta": I tried to get up and running with Qt development for iOS.

    After downloading and installing qt-mac-opensource-5.2.0-beta1-ios-x86_64-offline.dmg I could find the directories in the install path but I was not able to figure out how to connect and deploy to my iOS device.

    Furthermore there is no project template for creating a application for iOS available, even after configuring Qt version, compiler and kit.

    According to the instructions I found here "Connecting to iOS Devices Qt Creator": , the device should be automatically detected. But there is no entry for an iOS device under Preferences -> Devices to be found.

    What am I missing to get further iOS support ?

    Thank you all for your help and best regards!


  • Hi DaBoba,

    I also noticed the missing iOS preferences item when I was trying to set up the iOS support for Qt Creator 3. I stumbled across this post

  • Hi IIJu7II,

    thanks a lot for your answer. It helped me very much to solve this issue.

    In the post you linked you can read the following:
    Experimental support for iOS: Qt 5.2 ... (Experimental means that you have to turn on this feature in Help > About Plugins > Device Support > iOS.)

    After turning on and restarting Qt Creator my iOS device was detected immediately and now iOS is listed as one of the supported platforms.

    Thanks a lot for your help and best regards,
